Japan is steeped in legend and myth, perhaps the greatest of which is the popular misconception that the country is simply too expensive to visit. The truth is that flights to Japan are cheaper than they've ever been, accommodation can be great value, while the warm hospitality which awaits every visitor costs nothing at all.

The real secret to travelling around the country on a budget, however, is the Japan Rail Pass. Use this comprehensive guide in conjunction with a rail pass to get the most out of a trip to Japan.

* Practical information - planning your trip; suggested itineraries; what to take; getting to Japan

* City guides and maps - where to stay, where to eat, what to see in 26 towns and cities;

* Kilometre-by-kilometre route guides - covering train journeys from the coast into the mountains, from temple retreat to sprawling metropolis; 33 route maps

* Railway schedules- Bullet trains and all routes in this guide

* Customs, etiquette, Japanese phrases
